With nothing more than a punch line and a dream, these (then) struggling young artists transformed themselves into comedy legends. Here is a rare opportunity to see some of the world's greatest African American stars perform the routines that would someday make them Kings of Comedy.

Good for collectors

I give this the same comments that I give other dvds of this kind: This is not good for casual consumers of comedy. If you are looking for a good Friday night in comedy dvd, pass on this. Some may be interested to see what Chappelle was like before he made it big and depending on who you are, for the low price of this product, it may be worth it to you just to see Dave. Martin Lawrence is Martin Lawrence and Steve Harvey's set could have been good if he did drag out this one element of his joke sooooo long. If you're a collector, get this. If not, you should probably move on.

Most jokes was funny at that time. I have most of them on their own dvd.
We all have change with time so jokes are different. These was just to far in my/our past.

Not bad. I laughed a bit. And it's good to see beginning, so we can note the process of those we feel are a success.
